Gaza Propaganda War: Let the Character Assassinations Begin

by matttbastard

Well, looks like Fox and co. have discovered this years Green Helmet Guy–and he’s *gasp* a communist Euro-weenie!

Yes,  Bob, this totally proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that ordinary people aren’t actually dying in Gaza (shorter Lawhawk: “the chest compressions were produced on a computer in a Times New Roman typestyle that would not have been available in a war zone”).  Israel is (reluctantly!) using top sekrit SMRT ordinance that only explodes upon hitting Teh Bad Guyz.  Any evidence to the contrary should by default be dismissed as fauxtography mass-produced in Hamas’ secret underground lair (and people wonder why Israel continues to bar the international press from entering the strip…).

Fuck’s sake, it really is 2006 all over again–only the burning stupid engulfing Greater Wingnuttia is now a raging inferno.  They deserve to have their simplistic bizarro-worldview clumsily affirmed by Joe the War Correspondent.

  1. I guess the “hail” or “shower” of Hamas rockets and Israel’s right to defend itself talking point is not working.

    And although international journalists are banned from entering Gaza, those pesky UN and Red Cross workers in Gaza keep yapping to the international press with their horror stories.

    Now that the UN has ceased operations, there will be less “propaganda” drowning out the right wing talking points.


  2. We’ll be discussing the Israeli invasion of Gaza from perspectives on both sides of the divide Monday and Tuesday January 12 and 13 at 5 PM New York time on News Talk Online on with Israel’s Consul General in New York Asaf Shariv and Hussein Ibish, executive director of the Foundation for Arab-American Leadership and senior fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine.

  3. the situation in Gaza is wrongly seen: 1) as a war 2) as a rsponse to Hamas aggression. This is successful Israeli propagandawhich forces the world to view the situation through Israeli terms.

    There is a solution to ending the ineffective rocket fire of Hamas. Israelis could have chosen to address the injustices under which the Palestinian people live. They did not choose to do so. Instead they exacerabated the humiliations and wrongs in such a a manner as to lead one to believe that they deliberately provoked the proud people of Gaza into the only resopnse left to them – miserable ineffective rocket fire, to salve their feeling of utter helplessness – so that the Israelis could seize, under the pretext of self proteection, a deliberate cold blooded means of destroying them.

    Needling and provocation has always been Israeli policy- as for example the way Sharon provoked the second Intifada when he walked about flagrantly on the sacred grounds of the the Dome of the Mosque .

    The day the Israelis will be scared is the day that Palestinians refuse to be provoked.
